Details

Mt Herman is a prominent mountain in the middle Rampart Range just west of Monument.  It is easily seen driving south on I-25 from Castle Rock.  We follow a trail completely around the mountain through varied vegetation zones - an interesting scrub oak "forest" on the dry east side and an evergreen forest on the west side.  The west side is in Limbaugh Canyon which hosts many giant boulder formations common in the Pike NF.  Most of the elevation gain comes as we hike up and over the mountain's SW flank which will definitely slow our otherwise easy progress.  We will not visit the summit as that would put our tour into the "C" hike class - perhaps another time.
